The Doctrine of Ignorance
Once you understand the doctrine of political Islam, there is a question that naturally arises. Why doesn’t everyone know about this? It’s simple. But, first let’s take a look at the actual state of ignorance.
· The media never refers to the actual doctrine of political Islam.
· No university teaches the doctrine and history of Islamic slavery or about the dhimmi.
· No divinity or rabbinical school teaches the doctrine and history of Islam and the Christians and Jews.
Since schools don’t teach about Islam, is it any wonder that kafirs are ignorant?
So there is a doctrine of ignorance about Islam. It is not only that we don’t know, we have also developed a systemic social theory of why we will not learn. This guarantees the stability of ignorance. W are ignorant and we will remain ignorant.
The doctrine of ignorance is based upon fear, but it manifests many different ways.
The biggest part of any doctrine of ignorance is inertia. Most people never do anything to buck any system, no matter what the system is. These are the sheep, the sheeple. But this does not explain why leaders and intellectuals do not want learn about Islam. Leaders are supposed to be able to go against the tide.
WHAT WILL WE HAVE TO DO?
This is a big worry by kafirs. There is a sneaky suspicion that Islam is the equivalent of cancer, and if we have cancer, we have to do something. And that something may be drastic. Besides, Islam is so huge, that we can’t afford to do anything, so it is better to do nothing.
What is tragic about this concern for “what to do” is that it ignores the true nature of planning, strategy and execution. Don’t worry about what to do until you know what the problem is.
Not learning because you don’t want to think about what to do is like not getting the biopsy test because you might not like the results and have to deal with the possible cancer results. The smart thing, of course, is to get the data taken.
I KNOW THIS MUSLIM AND HE IS NICE
The defense here is that I don’t need to know about the doctrine or the history since Ahmed at work is so nice. Since Ahmed is nice, Islam is nice. That is all I need to know.
Of course, this means that you have to avoid ever wondering why so much violence around the world involves Islam and some Muslims are jihadists. Because if you thought that, you might have doubts about Islam is not so nice.
AFRAID OF BEING CALLED A BIGOT
If the doctrine is bad, then Muslims are bad. If I learn bad things about Islam, I will be called a bigot.
ISLAM CANNOT BE WORSE THAN CHRISTIANITY, SO WHY LEARN?
This belief is that nothing is worse than Christian religious violence. So no matter how bad Islam is it can’t be as bad as the Christians. Conclusion-there is no need to know about Islam, I can go back to sleep.
The only thing worse than religious violence in the 20th century was the violence of atheism. Mao of China was an atheist and caused the deaths of 77 million. Stalin of Russia were fervent atheists and killed 77 million and 62 million each. Hitler killed about 21 million and was not an atheist, but he despised Christianity and admired Islam. He said that Christians are wimps and Muslims are killers.
Hitler was right. Islam has killed about 270 million over 1400 years. Maybe, it would be a good thing to know how and why it happened.
IT’S TOO HARD/NON-MUSLIMS CANNOT KNOW ISLAM
This is one of the most common reasons to stay ignorant. One manifestation of this “too hard” idea is that only Muslims can understand the Koran.
This is a natural response because our educational systems have taught us nothing about Islam except its glorious triumphs (where no one suffered) and a vague Golden Age.
What is ironic here is that to understand political Islam, you only need to study Mohammed. How hard can that be? And now the Koran has been made easy to understand-A Simple Koran.
When you examine these ideas, they can all be summarized by one word-fear. Those who can function in the presence of fear are heroes. So you must be a little bit of a hero to learn about political Islam.
The next time you are speaking with someone about Islam and they have no facts about the doctrine or history, ask them: What is your reason for not learning about political Islam? Why are you afraid of this knowledge?
